ryan, right there. ryan accused 60% of americans of being takers instead of makers. his party campaigned on reforming medicare, medicaid and social security, but ryan reportedly got booed as he walked through this morning. ryan's reception is a striking reminder of why the republicans lost the election. today the president assured groups like the aarp and labor he hasn't forgotten his promise. >> we must make the hard choices to reduce the cost of health care and the size of our deficit. but we reject the belief that america must choose between caring for the generation that built this country and investing in the generation that will build its future. >> some republicans are complaining now that the president's speech was too partisan and didn't reach out enough. here is a news flash. this isn't about those republican lawmakers. this is about you, the american people and the policies that the president has put forth. it's about fixing the budget without burdening the poor in this country or the elderly or the disabled. the next four years are going to be very interesting. let
in urban areas, which definitely gave president obama the big margin to win this race. >> both paul ryan and mitt romney were outspoken about blaming their loss in november on a democratic coalition of women, minorities, and young people in this country. days after the election paul ryan saw a problem with the system. >> there's always an electoral college strategy in winning these things. and you know what states you need to win to get to 270 electoral votes. and when we watch the -- look at the map here, virginia and ohio coming in, and those ones coming in as tight as they were and then looking like we were going to lose them, that was when it game pretty clear to us we weren't going to win. >> paying attention now? now republicans have a new electoral strategy. win as many electoral votes as you can, even if you lose by a very large margin. rnc chair reince priebus announced his intention to pursue the virginia model nationally. and it would have quite an effect. this is the result of the 2012 presidential election. barack obama won 332 electoral votes, beating mitt romney's 206 vote
those scheduled to testify. congressman paul ryan sat down for his first sunday talk show appearance since the 2012 election. the congressman told "meet the press" moderator david gregory that it's premature to talk about whether he will run for president in 2016. >> i've got an important job to do. i represent wisconsin. i'm chairman of the budget committee at the time we have a fiscal crisis. i think can i do my job representing the people that i work for by focusing on that right now than focusing on these distant things. >> and there's this, a new anti-chuck hagel ad has just popped up days before senate hearings are set to start on his nomination as defense secretary. the ad is from a conservative group called americans for strong defense. at least five other groups from the right and from the left are all organizing to block hagel's nomination. first though shame on you, barack obama. it was one of hillary clinton's most notorious quotes when challenging her 2008 democratic opponent, then candidate obama later shot back calling his opponent, quote, likable enough. the two have
, my favorite image, is that that included beyoncyonce stand near paul ryan and there was this vision of them together. this is fun. this is kind of american politics and culture, you know, crossing these lines. and will it hold? perhaps not. but for a moment, it is a recognition that we don't have violent military coups in this country. we have a peaceful transition of power. >> you also saw there chairman frank as the reference in terms of his speech where he talked about the struggles that had gone from selma to stone wall and all. on the program, myrlie evers, the widow of medgar evers, on the program, sonya sotomayo justice. show me the change that we're talking about. >> no question. when hispanics, when gay and lesbian and bisexual and transgender people, when people who have been excluded come forward, it is not at the expense of the people, but it's important for everybody. and that is his theme. it is a better america. it is a more prosperous america. it is when you employ the talents of everybody. by the way, we saw that. white men dominated the manufacturing in america. an
alrejected the division the term by paul ryan with the makers and the takers. >> we do not believe that in this country, freedom is reserved for the lucky. or happiness for the few. we recognize that no matter how responsibly we live our lives, any one of us, at any time, may face a job loss or a sudden illness or a home swept away in a terrible storm. the commitments we make to each other through medicare and medicaid and social security, these things do not sap our initiative, they strengthen us. they do not make us a nation of takers, they free us to take the risks that make this country great. >> rick, that was the first time i've ever heard anybody make that fasz nating defense of these safety net programs. wherein parents will risk anything. they'll spend all of their money as they make it on tuition bills for their kids, with the assumption of if worse comes to worse, i can make it on social security. >> yeah, that's right. and this was a -- you might say that this was an ideological speech in the best sense of that word. and the battle of ideas and of visions is one that li
. the speaker embraced congressman paul ryan's new plan to balance the budget in 10 year period. in contrast, partisanship on parade. chamber trying to figure out what clinton knew and when she knew it. no answers were forth coming, and the secretary assumed either no knowledge or no blame over the course of 5 hours of testimony before the senate foreign relations committee and the house foreign affairs committee. this was her reaction to republican senator ron johnson when he questioned her on the administration's false narrative in days and weeks after terrorists killed ambassador christopher stevens and 3 other americans. >> we were mislead, there were supposedly protests and something sprang out of that, that was -- ascertained of that not the fact. and american people could have known that. >> with all due respect, we had 4 dead americans, it was because of a protestor guys out for a walk one night that decided to go kill some americans, what difference, at this point does it make, it is our job to figure out what happened and do everything we can to prevent it trevofrom ever happening
. so let's see what they're offering. what's the take from their hero, paul ryan? i decided to not comment between the election and the inauguration. all of the statements and all of the comments needed me to believe that he's thinking more of a political conquest than a political compromise. >> pity party. table for one, please. the gop is stuck on this one. the president obamas trying to destroy the gop. trying to shove them into the dust pan of history. here's a hint. president obama doesn't need to do that. republicans are doing it just fine all by themselves. for all their bluster about change, gop leaders insist on no overall at all is needed. one gop official everyone says "we don't need a new pair of shoes, we just need to shine our shoes. shine their shoes? that's not goods enough. republicans need to try walking in someone else's shoes for a change. because for all of their talk about out reach to women, the rnc just approved a resolution. calling on congress to defunct planned parenthood with no objections. and while support for women's rights to choose is at an a
and was a key backer of the 2010 health care bill and congressman paul ryan today spelling out what he learned from the re-election. the re-election of president obama, he is speaking at the national review summit and talking about his experience as a vice presidential candidate, he said moving forward the gop has to layout their vision with more specifics and with a broader appeal. meanwhile, this coming week the president will be unveiling the next step in his second term agenda. immigration. he is going to announce his plan to overhaul immigration. joining me now from the white house, kristen, the white house said friday that the president will be doubling down on policies that he has supported in the past. does that mean we probably won't hear anything new tuesday? >> well, we could hear some new proposes as well, craig, but i think that much of what he is going to unveil will be rooted in some of the policies that he is mapping out in the past. of course, this is an issue that president obama has been talking about since 2008, he said that it's one of his great regret that's has not gotte
't take it very seriously, and then his comment to paul ryan i thought was a telling one saying to paul ryan we don't have a definitive solution to the problem, but we don't like yours. you got to have solutions if you're the secretary of treasury. melissa: tim, what do you think? can you cut it in the middle. we have an a and a d, what do you give him? >> actually, i feel right in the best place. i give him a c-plus, better than average, better than average. he had a tough job over the last four years, and i'm not sure anybody could have scored an "an," even though my colleagues think so. at the start, he didn't start well or end well. the stimulus package at the beginning of the administration was largely untargetted and unproductive, and didn't really help us. melissa: is that really something that he designs? i feel like you give the president a "d" or "f" for that. he's just carrying out the policy. >> part of the team, but he was not effective in convincing the administration that they needed, if they were going to deficit spend in order to bridge us through the recession, they sh

for reelection. >> unapologetically liberal. >> congressman paul ryan is a guy who believes the country is made up of makers and takers. that's what he said. it's no surprise he didn't like the president's speech. >> the president is a proud and confident liberal progressive. he invoked the constitution and the declaration at times, which are something that everybody likes to hear, especially conservatives. but he invoked them as a means to sort of legitimize the agenda that he has going forward, which was fairly partisan, very ideological for sure, and, you know, it didn't surprise me that he did that, because he is basically saying i'm a liberal, and i'm going to govern as a liberal, and i won. so there. >> the mayor of cable tv believes it's proof that america will be torn apart. >> rather than focusing on america's problems like exploding debt and a weak economy, mr. obama put forth that the nation's top priority must be impose social justice. so it is quite clear that the president is willing to go down in history as a crusader for social justice, no matter what happens to the economic fab
